Winter Wonderland Week 2

This week's Winter Wonderland Coffee Swap topic is:

I love the holidays, it turning colder here, and I love coffee. As the cold of winter approaches, do you change the projects you work on? Do you work on gifts for others or do you continue working on projects for yourself?

Well, by the "nature of the beast" - meaning the temps are cooler and there's less playing outside and more lounging inside, I do tend to knit more often now. I also tend to pick up those heavier wools that kept sticking to my fingers during the hot sticky months. I'm currently knitting away on items to sell at
A Knitter's Garden Open House on Dec 1 & 2 and as soon as those are finished, I'm diving in to some very optimistic gift knitting.... optimistic that it'll be done in time for Christmas, that is! Wish me luck. After that, I hope to spend a wonderful winter working on some of the hundreds many projects I have stashed for myself, including a couple of sweaters and many, many pairs of socks! Heck, maybe I'll even get a jump on next year's holiday knitting!

Good luck on the Holiday knitting and booth at the open house :-)

I rarely work on projects for me anymore, but as it gets colder I do tend to change the type of things I make. For instance an afghan is perfect for a winter in NY, but in the summer, lets say dishcloths are the item of choice, or socks if I could figure out how to make them already.

I like your header picture... how do you get it to be like that? Do you create it somewhere else and then paste it there? I really would like to change mine.

Thanks for the comment about my dress. It was so much fun.

The knitting group was awesome but hard to teach 8 kids who have never learned...but I survived. :) I'll post more later...

It was pretty cool meeting Mr. Petfinder. :)
